Discuss your library search strategies and briefly summarize the literature you reviewed
By the due date assigned, post your response to the assigned discussion questions in the belowÂ Discussion Area. It is important to support what you say with relevant citations in the APA format from both the course materials and outside resources. Include the South University Online Library in your research activities utilizing not only the nursing resource database, but also those pertaining to education, business, and human resources.
No later than by the end of the week, review and comment on the discussion question responses posted by at least two of your peers. Always use constructive language. All comments should be posted to the appropriate topic in this Discussion Area.
In this course, each of you will be developing a research proposal. Our focus this week is to identify a problem specific to your role option that is amenable to an innovative solution.
Based on your specialty role option (i.e., Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Educator, Nurse Informaticist, Nurse Administrator), identify a potential problem (topic) that you would like to investigate through nursing research. Begin by reading the American Association of Colleges of Nursingâ€™s (AACN) position statement on nursing research (Nursing Research).
Next explore Southâ€™s Online Library and conduct a search to locate a minimum of three nursing research articles that have addressed the problem you have identified. The literature may not be older than 5 years. After reading the literature respond to the following:
- Note your role specialization and briefly describe the problem you are interested in researching and why this is of interest to you.
- Discuss your library search strategies and briefly summarize the literature you reviewed. Focus your discussion on the â€œproblemâ€ and how the literature you identified provides evidence of the existence of the problem.
- Include in your discussion a potential innovation that you might consider as a solution to the problem identified.
- Include citations/references in APA style format, using citations where appropriate.
